Start learning some basic definitions off by heart.

Start with theft and burglary etc,

As you learn them inside out, move onto twoc, crim dam, drugs offences and assaults/affray etc.

Then look up arrest powers, grounds for searching people, property etc.

Knowing these may help you a bit in training as it's an important task you will not need to worry about.

Have a good understanding of the European human rights act too.

Good luck

There are a few apps knocking around like beat buddy and pocket Sgt. If you sign up to be a member of College of Policing you can get black stones policing manuals aswell (have a look at the site)
The manuals have the definitions for pretty much everything.
I've bought them and save abit of reading they have the osprey framework aswell if your looking to go further !

I'm sure Cambs police HR check this forum, just received an email my start date is 20/03/2017. Very happy, little bit longer of a wait than some lucky people on here (looking at you @alicing) but still none the less certainly gives me a target now.
